The Cadaver Dans at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

The Cadaver Dans

This year at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party we decided to watch Mickey’s Boo to You Parade from a different spot. We love the lighting on Main Street but we wanted to catch an act we had never watched before, the Cadaver Dans.

The Cadaver Dans

We always make time to see the Dapper Dans on Main Street so watching the Undead Cowboys was something I can mark off my Disney bucket list.

The Dans make their way up the parade route, stopping to perform in a few spots. Luckily we picked the perfect one (right outside of the Frontierland Trading Post) because they stopped right in front of us. It was a great way to get ready for the parade since one of the “tombs” they performed was the Headless Horseman from Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

The Cadaver Dans are exclusive to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. You can also catch them on their spooky raft on the Rivers of America at Disneyland’s Mickey’s Halloween Party (although next week you’ll be able to see them during the daytime hours for Limited Time Magic.)

The Cadaver Dans

Their performances are not listed in the party’s times guide but we were able to see them before the first parade of the night (you’ll need to show up early to get a spot anyway). If catching the Cadaver Dans at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is on your Disney bucket list as well, then stop by Guest Relations to find out what times they are scheduled to perform.

I consider seeing the Undead Cowboys a must do so if you are planning on attending one of the few parties left this year, or are thinking of going next year, make sure to add them to you to do list. I promise that you won’t be disappointed!

    We walked up towards the end of one of their performances. What a fun group, next time will have to check timing so we can catch the whole show.

    I love them! I just about think that their makeup is too good. How spooky!

    Oh my gosh, I didn’t know these guys existed in the Undead Cowboy form! LOL What amazing talent. I’m so glad you got to see them up close and get some great pictures and video to share with us. 🙂

    Awesome article! I happened upon them the last time I was at MNSSHP – I was so surprised I enjoyed the whole show and only remembered to take a couple of photos!
